Menu Plan Monday
Alright, this is very new to me, but I feel like I'm learning a lot (during the time I'm supposed to be dusting, vacuuming, folding laundry, etc.)! I do teach one piano lesson in about 30 minutes, and I have about 1 hrs. worth of folding to do, but ... I know where to hide it! Also, my husband's working on his MBA and he has school tonight, so he won't be home. That means that we can have leftovers (clearing out some more of the fridge) and I don't have to panic about the way the house looks. At least until 10:00 pm. So...back to blogging. I will post here (and hopefully every Monday), the menu that I have planned for the week. Here goes...
TONIGHT-- leftover lentil soup, apple slices
TUESDAY-- split pea soup, salad
Actually, I won't be here Tuesday night, but my kids will. They will have a babysitter for the first time in at least 2 years. My husband and I are attending a banquet for our alma mater. My husband also grew up on campus, so this is an unusually exciting event for me. I get out of the house, sans kids, and get to fellowship with old friends for about 2-3 hours. I'm very excited! But back to menu planning, the kids will still eat healthy. We'll have to see what the babysitter's willing to eat!
WEDNESDAY -- Italian Beef Bake, broccoli, cornbread, salad
THURSDAY -- Spaghetti Squash w/spaghetti sauce, salad
FRIDAY -- Rice & beans, asparagus, salad
SATURDAY -- Turkey burgers, baked potato, kale, salad
SUNDAY -- Roast, potatoes, carrots, green veggie, salad
Well, I've finally guilted myself into folding at least a few items before my student arrives. So more from my house later!
